Back in I posted about the 1969 Topps Deckle Edge set. About a month ago I went to a card shop and happened to arrive while their auction was going on. I wasn't planning on bidding on anything because I hadn't had a chance to look anything over ahead of time. Even when this lot of twelve Deckle Edge cards came up I wasn't going to bid because I thought the odds of me needing many, wouldn't be likely since I only needed 11 of the 35 cards. But then the auctioneer mentioned that the lot included the Jim Wynn card. I decided to bid, just based on that card alone. I ended up getting it for around $8. I'm glad I did.
Not only did it have the Jim Wynn card, but there were 4 other cards I needed as well, so now I'm down to just needing 5 cards. ***Update - As of 7/15/21 I need just 3 cards to complete the set.***
#2 - Boog Powell #4 - Carl Yastremski #6 - Luis Aparicio
#11a - Hoyt Wilhelm
#11b - Jim Wynn #16 - Frank Howard
#20 - Tommy Helms
#22a - Rusty Staub
#22b - Joe Foy #26 - Richie Allen #29 - Bob Gibson
If you have any of the cards I still need, please let me know and maybe we can work something out.

I'm a fan of the Topps All-Star glossy sets. I am keeping track of my progress for completing the run here.
Currently I am missing the 1984, 1987, 1990, and 1991 sets. I have a few cards from these sets, including this 1984 Topps 1983 All-Star Dale Murphy card shown below.
I collect Dale Murphy cards. I pick up his cards when I see them in a dime box. I do have his rookie card and a certified autograph, but the majority of the cards I have of his are like the card below; base cards that are for the most part, readily available.
